    What girl (most likely a guy lol) did was start a squidoo lens based on acai berry review being a complete scam. He tells the users to go to epassporte to create a virtual credit card and charge it with $25 or so. The motivation he gives to the visitors is to hurt the acai berry scammers buy using limited debit cards to rip them off. I personally think it is pretty clever :) hope hes blanking/faking though cos if the aff manager saw that page... its ranked number 3 in health btw:

    You aren't paying $25, you would pay around $2 or $3 for S/H at first and then they will charge you $40-$80 a week or so later. By using limited debit cards they won't be able to charge it again since the account will be empty. So if you have $30 on a VCC or a limited debit card you can do around 10 of these and will be charged only $2 or $3. So whoever made the lens is implying that they should do so which will hurt the Acai companies since they will deliver trials at $2-$3 and won't be able to charge the account while he is generating leads through his affiliate link and getting paid $30 a pop - and people aren't aware of this step. What he doesn't know is that he most likely won't get paid if he does this on a large scale.

    Ouch! That may be a federal fraud charge. I'd be careful there.

    Most of these sites are on to this, pre-paid cards rarely work.

    Jaz74: Just use the newest Acia Berry offer on your CPA site, they are constantly changing them.

    I think they are trying to advertise their site, more than trying to scam the free acai trial pages. Their punch line is "BBB APPROVED SOURCE like acaiberrysite" which sell for $30 dollars up to 100 on their site.
